Billick, Rex Ryan Fired! Hallelujah!

It's going to be hard for me to type this post through my tears. Joyous, joyous tears.

The Baltimore Sun and are reporting that Brian Billick has been fired by the Ravens after nine years as head coach.

Owner Steve Bisciotti, who does not comment on any football-related matters during the season, had this to say about the previously reported "vote of confidence" Billick received last month:

"I just changed my mind. I can't explain it to you. It's the toughest decision I've had to make," Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti told The Sun today.

In his nine seasons, Billick compiled an 80-64 (.556) regular season record, and a 5-3 playoff record in four postseasons. The Ravens won the Super Bowl despite Billick in 2000-2001.
Later this afternoon I'll post a list of preferred candidates.
UPDATE: The entire staff was fired, including Rex Ryan. Ozzie Newsome indicated that Ryan would still be a part of the head coaching search.
